Just finished brewing a simple SMASH Maris Otter, US-05, and "Experimental Pine Fruit" hop pale ale. Just 4 oz in 15L, but looking forward to seeing what this hop tastes like. Smelled amazing!

Just to be different, I did a mild that came in at 1.030. I was aiming for 1.038, but I messed up the boil loss guestimate and ended up with ~6 gallons instead of 5.5. I did this yesterday, in my detached garage. That was about as cold a brew day as I care to experience.

It's going gangbusters on the WY 1098 starter I had ready for it. Glad I set up the blow-off tube.

Got some more WLP029 so I'm revisiting the killer red kolsch from homebrewtalk.com that didn't turn out quite so red last time. Some tweaks and Granny Smith apples to produce:

2 curious questions for you

1. oxygen stone to aerate?
2. will you re-oxygenate at 24 hrs?

Did you end up undershooting OG? That doesn't look like enough grain once you take into account the decreased efficiency of larger grain bills. I usually shoot for ~63% when I go that high in OG. 75% around 1.050.
